V 5 200 V

A method that is commonly
employed to simplify the analyR 5 400 V
sis of an ac circuit driven by a
sinusoidal source is to represent
the impedance Z as a complex number. The resistance R is taken to
be the real part of the impedance, and the reactance X = XL - XC
is taken to be the imaginary part. Thus, for a branch containing a
resistor, inductor, and capacitor in series, the complex impedance
is Zcpx = R + iX, where i 2 = - 1. If the voltage amplitude across
the branch is Vcpx, we dene a complex current amplitude by
Icpx = Vcpx>Zcpx. The actual current amplitude is the absolute
value of the complex current amplitude; that is, I = 1Icpx *Icpx21>2 .
The phase angle f of the current with respect to the source voltage
is given by tan f = Im1Icpx2>Re1Icpx2. The voltage amplitudes
VR-cpx, VL-cpx, and VC-cpx across the resistance, inductance, and
capacitance, respectively, are found by multiplying Icpx by R, iXL,
and - iXC, respectively. From the complex representation for the
voltage amplitudes, the voltage across a branch is just the algebraic
sum of the voltages across each circuit element: Vcpx = VR-cpx +
VL-cpx + VC-cpx. The actual value of any current amplitude or voltage amplitude is the absolute value of the corresponding complex
